      talk about it with us and maybe we can help but only share what you’re comfortable with of course. Try to use your words and express yourself and always ask for help when you need it.

      I hate that phrase bc people used to say to me all the time and it was toxic positivity the way they were doing it. But they were Christian’s of course so it was their thing. But I mean I still agree with it it’s just I feel sometimes it’s not good advice. I feel sometimes it is actually bad advice.

        You have to use it appropriately and wisely at the right time sparingly. Toxic positivity can do more harm than good. Sometimes people are at really dark places in their lives and it can just hit them the wrong way.

        agreed. It's ok to not think positively all the time. That's part of who we are as humans. Life sucks sometimes and a lot of people use that phrase as a backhanded "well things can be worse" attitude. It's good to be positive but when you're not in the right headspace for that, the comment can be condescending.

    Often the desire to give up is based on wanting the pain to stop. You can stop the pain in other ways. Giving up is not the solution.

      yes. Focusing on other things always helps me. It’s a positive distraction and can help get you out of your current situation and help resolve and solve problems.

    I have a big spiral calendar to write my appointments and work schedule in. I go to an app work has to request time off for my appointments has soon as I can so I don’t have any conflicts. Or a least try. I don’t have much of a life so I try to keep my bedroom minimalist as I can.

    To keep track of my meds, I use the app called Medisafe. For my appointments, I use my calendar. I put the appt in as I’m making it. I’m also the keeper of my partner’s health stuffs!

    I’m horrible at tracking appointments, etc, but I’ve managed to take my meds by taking them when I feed my fish! She gets grumpy if she doesn’t eat at the right time every day, so it keeps me in check.

    It's highly likely I have ocpd & it's started to turn into ocd, so I'm very much a planner. I make lists. Lots of lists
